Just the right size to spend half a day with my granddaughter.She enjoyed the rides and the people who work there all treated the little one good. I do think they need more farm animals that kids could touch. Maybe some ducks in the lakes would also help.

My granddaughter, age 2, loves going here. Likes the carousel, animals, and train ride. Just the right size for little legs to walk. If you don't have a membership, there are a few free days throughout the summer.

Great place for families and groups. Quaint historical village with its own blacksmith shop. Kids enjoy the new playground and hands on with the animals and the train ride around the park. We enjoyed the Wine Wednesdays in the summer listening to music under the stars.

I visited on a daycare outing that included the families. We ended up spending 1/2 a day wandering around to the blacksmith shop, and pottery shop, and cabins. Had lunch at a picnic area and rode the train. Lot of fun for a large group of kids.

We bought a season pass last year for us to use with our grand daughter who is two. It was great. She rode ponies, went on the train ride and loved the barnyard area too. She played in the children's area which was equipped with little tractors and tot cars to play in. They also have a play table loaded... More

Our visit was on a cold winter day just before Christmas. The park is decorated nicely for the holidays and it is really geared appropriately for families and young children. Our two nieces had their faces painted in the Huntoon House building and they loved exploring all of the different buildings, activities, and displays. Of special interest was the blacksmith...

We love Blackberry farm. So much to do for little ones there! Playground, Train rides, tractor rides, paddle boats, merry go round, and sooo much more. All for a decent price. You could spend a whole day there with a picnic lunch. Nicely run and always clean too!

Blackberry Farm in Aurora is a perfect outing for a family with children. When our oldest grand-children became teen-agers they completely lost interest, but we're so glad that the younger ones still love the place. Every year there seem to be more attractions, and it is amazing that admission is still so reasonable. Being right across the street from a... More

Did you ever go someplace and think "this is it?" You won't have that experience at Blackberry Farm. One admission price buys you more activities than can be crammed into a day. They have train rides, hay rides, pony rides, petting zoo, carousel, fishing, museums, the list goes on. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You'll love your visit.

I took my kids to Blackberry Farm throughout their childhood and we have many happy memories. In recent years they've done much to improve the children's playland and kept all the historical buildings we remember. Don't forget that they have special weekends in the fall and near Christmas!
